Aguruphobia is unlike any other film I've seen, comedy or otherwise, and that's saying something in today's world of formulaic movie making. I saw this in the theater on a whim, and it resulted in seeing it twice. Not sure what to expect I was greeted to a uniquely hilarious and curious storyline, populated by a cast of dazzling, standout characters. It's a roller-coaster ride of strange that always keeps you guessing where things are going. The humor runs strong throughout, but never at the expense of the film's heart: a story about a woman (played excellently by Jade Puga) suffering from a crippling phobia, and her questionable guru Nanak (perfectly embodied by Pepe Serna) who may or may not be exploiting her attempts for a somewhat normal life. The entire experience had me laughing and cheering. If you're a fan of the silly and the heartfelt-offbeat, this is the medicine to cure your phobia of the same old thing. A comedic success!
